Benchmarks With Emulators

 Share

Why are there no benchmarks with emulators? Im sure many people use emulators.

Probably because more people are interested in benchmarks of AAA games, not older games played in an emulator. For example, a 2006 Core 2 Quad will run pretty much all emulated games. Therefore, if you have something more powerful than a Core 2 Quad, you can run them just fine.

Well, stuff like ps2 and Dolphin still bring systems to there knees cause it just wasnt made for x86 architecture

I bet it might get weird in terms of sponsors and what not. Emulators are legal, but ripping games onto a computer is a little more grey. Not everyone would want to be associated with that.

Emulators are weirdly optimized, and very few pc gamers play games on emulators that are intensive, so overall not a good way to judge hardware.

Emulators are pretty niche compared to PC games, so not many hardware reviewers have enough basic knowledge to do the benchmarks, and they probably aren't hearing much demand for it, so they don't have much of an incentive to figure it out. About the only outlet I know of that did anything emulator related was Anandtech, which used to run a Dolphin benchmark. It would be great if someone would pick this up and benchmark the major emulators, but I'm not holding my breath.
